    Malta has a comprehensive health service which is funded from taxation and is free to patients. All EU nationals resident in Malta are eligible to receive free medical treatment from government-funded hospitals and clinics. The main general hospital is St Luke’s in Guardamangia, where all major operations are performed. There is also a general hospital in Gozo offering a wide range of medical facilities. Throughout the islands, towns and villages have their own medical clinics. There are charges for prescription medicines, but people on low-incomes and those suffering from specified chronic diseases are exempt from payment.

    The Maltese Ministry of Health advises foreign residents to take out private medical insurance. There are three very good private hospitals in Malta.

    Tourists from the UK and Australia who are visiting Malta for less than 30 days are eligible under reciprocal health agreements for free emergency medical treatment at a state-run hospital.

    Travellers are not normally required to provide certificates of vaccination or insulation on their arrival in Malta.

    Tap water is safe to drink, but bottled water is also widely available. Milk and dairy products are safe, as are local meat, seafood, fruit and vegetables.
